Wikifarmer delivers a fully functional and secure online payment environment where you can sell your products and get paid easily and quickly.

Who will buy my products? To whom will I issue my invoice?
Wikifarmer works with a network of thousands of business Buyers. The main buyer categories are food production units, mini-market chains, supermarkets, restaurant and hotel chains, coffee shops, catering services, bakeries, and greengrocers looking for agricultural products at competitive prices. After the order confirmation, Wikifarmer will buy the products from you. In this way, we can guarantee your payment and give credit terms to the final customer. By selling to Wikifarmer as a supplier, you can be certain that your products are in good hands and that you are protected from fraudulent activities. If you have accurately described your products and you have shipped them or timely delivered them exactly as described on your Wikifarmer page in terms of quality and quantity, we guarantee that you will receive the money for your order, or at least receive the product back in excellent condition.
How and when will I get paid?
Once we confirm that everything worked well with the delivery of your products (your products were as advertised on your page in terms of quality and quantity), Wikifarmer will transfer the full amount of the order you invoiced to the bank account that you have stated in your Supplier’s Profile. Please note that the transfer may take from 2 to 5 working days, depending on the country where your bank is based.
It seems very interesting, but where do I start from?
Create an account here and become a Supplier in Wikifarmer. After we verify your account and confirm you are eligible for selling, you can:
1) Publish your products with your desired prices, delivery areas, and other relevant information.
2) Accept orders and Requests for Bulk Prices.
3) Deliver your products to local companies or arrange shipping.
I am an amateur producer. That is, I cultivate informally without papers and have some products for sale. Can you buy my crop and resell it?
No, to register on Wikifarmer and publish your products, you must have all the licenses and be able to issue all the necessary papers (Invoice, Shipping Documents, etc.). We cannot buy anything from someone not registered as a legal producer or trader of food or agricultural products.
What kind of products can I publish on Wikifarmer?
We accept and approve the publication of fresh or packaged products by legal producers or traders registered in their home country. Of course, all producers must comply with the current legislation. However, each supplier is solely responsible for the quality of their products and the publication of the products (description, etc.). Please mind that we do not accept seeds, fertilizers, tobacco, and cannabis products.
Do you disapprove of products?
Yes, we may disapprove or later deactivate products on a case-by-case basis if we do not have clear evidence that they have arisen from legitimate producers or traders who can issue all the necessary legal and financial documents and comply with European Legislation. We also do not accept seeds, fertilizers, tobacco, and cannabis products.
I already have an e-shop, and I want to increase my sales. Can I make a profile on Wikifarmer? Can you help me?
Of course, we can help you increase your sales, as our platform attracts millions of unique visitors every month. Wikifarmer was built to offer an alternative income channel to farmers and producers. The fact that you already have an e-shop does not mean that we are competitors. You can make a profile, publish your products, and use our traffic. However, we expect you will not engage in any activity with a Wikifarmer user and seek to complete a transaction outside of Wikifarmer Marketplace. In addition to that we require that the prices you set on Wikifarmer are equal to your website.
Do you accept Cash on Delivery?
No. We accept only electronic payments to safeguard every transaction and protect the suppliers.
Who is responsible for transportation costs?
The order form you will receive clearly states on a case-by-case basis if you are supposed to find a transport company or if Wikifarmer is responsible for collecting your products from your premises. However, Wikifarmer will be able to help you minimize these costs.
Is there any written agreement between me and Wikifarmer that guarantees my payment?
Of course. By selling through our Platform, we ensure that you avoid fraud by malicious Buyers, who may ask for the products before payment and never pay or try to scam Suppliers in various ways.
If you have accurately described your products and you have shipped them or timely delivered them in the agreed quantity and quality, we guarantee that you will receive the money for your order, or at least receive the product back in excellent condition.
